DoJ joins False Claims Act case against Healthpoint

DoJ issued a press release on April 1 (but it was no April fools' day joke) that it "has filed a complaint against Healthpoint Ltd., alleging civil False Claims Act violations arising from the company’s sale of an unapproved prescription drug that was ineligible for payment under Medicaid and Medicare, the Justice Department announced today.  In the complaint, filed in the District of Massachusetts, the government alleges that the Ft. Worth, Texas-based subsidiary of DFB Pharmaceuticals Inc., submitted false statements concerning the regulatory status of Xenaderm to the United States, thereby causing false or fraudulent prescription claims for the unapproved drug to be submitted to Medicaid and Medicare."
